Course Summary

Course overview

Accounting and finance are central to managing organisations effectively. This course integrates accounting, leadership and change, and gives you a practical insight into developing the discipline. It also provides you with a firm knowledge of accounting and finance and the adaptability needed in a rapidly changing environment.

This course is distinctive in its focus on using financial skills in organisations rather than on mathematically modelling financial markets and in placing business accounting systems in the national and global business environment. You develop hard and soft accounting skills as well as the interpersonal skills necessary to work effectively in the challenging business environment. If you are a fully or part-qualified accountant, significant exemptions are available.

This programme is available with 100 credits of advanced standing to entrants who have obtained a full professional accounting qualification such as ACCA, CIMA and ICAEW. These students will only need to undertake two modules to complete the award - Current Issues in Accounting and Research, and the Accounting Dissertation.

Top 3 reasons to study accounting and finance with us:

  • Industry input: we work with brands including Coca-Cola, Apple, Adobe, Microsoft, KPMG, Ernst & Young, and Johnson & Johnson to give you experience of working with global organisations.
  • Entrepreneurial opportunities: our students have created 500 new business start-ups through Launchpad and Microbiz – a start-up community who provide support and advice for students looking to start a new business venture.
  • United Nations’ PRME initiative – we’re a proud signatory of the United Nations’ Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) initiative, which aims to globally raise the profile of sustainability and responsible leadership to equip current and future leaders with the skills to deliver positive change for business and society.

Career opportunities

Graduates can expect to be employed in areas within industry, accounting practices or the public sector. The degree provides a good stepping stone to training for a career in accountancy or a role in general management, and also provides those seeking positions in the finance industry with both specialist finance knowledge and the necessary level of understanding of accounting.

Modules

This module explores concepts and techniques in financial reporting, governance and professional ethics, and then moves to develop a critical understanding of the theoretical issues associated with the subject and the relevant skills associated with work issues in the area. You are assessed by a combination of a written essay and an end examination.
